Lincoln Center Theater's 75th anniversary Broadway revival of Clifford Odets' Golden Boy, starring Anthony Crivello, Seth Numrich, Tony Shalhoub and Danny Burstein, will begin previews Nov. 8 at the Belasco Theatre.
Tony Award-winning LCT resident director Bartlett Sher (South Pacific, The Light in the Piazza, Women on the Verge...), who also helmed the 2006 revival of Odets' Awake and Sing! for LCT, will stage Golden Boy. Opening is Dec. 6.
The new production of Golden Boy will begin previews nearly 75 years to the date that the original staging premiered on Nov. 4, 1937, at the Belasco.
Tony Award winner Crivello (Kiss of the Spider Woman) will play Eddie Fuseli, with original Broadway War Horse star Numrich in the central role of Joe Bonaparte.
The cast also features Shalhoub (Lend Me A Tenor) and Burstein (Follies, South Pacific), as well as Jonathan Hadary (Awake and Sing!, Gypsy), Daniel Jenkins (Big River), Michael Aronov (Blood and Gifts), Demosthenes Chrysan, Karl Glusman, Sean Cullen (South Pacific), Dagmara Dominczyk (The Violet Hour), Ned Eisenberg (Awake and Sing!), Brad Fleischer (Coram Boy), Karl Glusman (Seagull), Danny Mastrogiorgio (Stunning), Dion Mucciacito (Apple Cove), Lucas Caleb Rooney (Henry IV), Vayu O'Donnell (Man and Boy), Yvonne Strahovski (Finn City) and David Wohl (Dinner at Eight).
According to LCT, "Golden Boy is the story of Joe Bonaparte (to be played by Seth Numrich), a young, gifted violinist who is torn between pursuing a career in music and earning big money as a prize fighter."
The production will have sets by Michael Yeargan, costumes by Catherine Zuber, lighting by Donald Holder and sound by Peter John Still and Marc Salzberg.

Holed up in a seedy motel on the edge of the Mojave Desert, two former lovers unpack the deep secrets and dark desires of their tangled relationship, passionately tearing each other apart. Led by director Daniel Aukin (Back Back Back at MTC, 4,000 Miles), Tony winner Nina Arianda (Venus in Fur at MTC, Born Yesterday) and Sam Rockwell (A Behanding in Spokane, The Way Way Back) bring an explosive intensity to Sam Shepard’s (Buried Child, True West) landmark myth of the new Wild West.
